Description

 

RARE & STRIKING ANTIQUE FRENCH INCREDIBLY DETAILED SAMPLER OR MARQUOIR DATED Circa.1864,SIGNED BY ITS' EMBROIDERER "MARIE TURBERT" AND MAKING A WONDERFUL ADDITION FOR ANY COLLECTION.
DISCOVERED AT A RECENT BROCANTE IN THE HEART OF THE NORMANDY REGION OF NORTHERN FRANCE, THIS RARE VIVID-COLOURED SAMPLER,IS AN ABSOLUTE STUNNING WORK OF ART FEATURING  EXQUISITE COLOURFUL SUBJECT MATTER. THE BEAUTIFUL VILLAGE CHURCH  WORKED INTO THE LEFT HAND SIDE  IS FLANKED BY BEAUTIFUL LANDSCAPE AND SIGNED UNDERNEATH "FAIT PAR MARIE TURBERT 1864"

THIS APPEARS FAR TOO ACCOMPLISHED TO BE THE WORK OF A YOUNG GIRL (YET I HAVE PREVIOUSLY SEEN EMBROIDERED SAMPLERS LIKE THIS BY CHILDREN AS YOUNG AS 9 YEARS OLD!) THE MARQUOIR IS SIGNED IN THE NAME OF NAMED "MARIE TURBERT" IN THE YEAR OF 1864, WITH THE VERY ELABORATE ALPHABET LETTER WORDING IN CO-ORDINATING COLOUR TO THE MAIN PICTURE ,OR "ABECEDARIE" AS IT BE KNOWN, UNDERNEATH,  WHICH WAS NOT CLASSED AS  ART-WORK BUT EMBROIDERY LESSONS & THE PRIDE OF EACH LITTLE GIRL ARRIVING IN THE ADULT WORLD. ON A SWATH OF LINEN CLOTH SHE WOULD EMBROIDER THE LETTERS OF THE ALPHABET AS WELL AS NUMBERS FROM 1-10. THIS PIECE APPEARS MAYBE TO HAVE BEEN DONE PERHAPS BY AN OLDER GIRL OR YOUNG WOMAN AND IS STUNNINGLY & AMAZINGLY BEAUTIFUL!

MEASURING  A VERY LARGE 22.50 x 19.00 INCHES DIMENSION,THIS MARQUOIR DISPLAYS AMAZING DETAIL FROM CLOUDS IN THE SKY TO AN AMAZING  CENTRAL LANDSCAPE DESIGN...INCLUDING A LITTLE GIRL OR YOUNG WOMAN SITTING BENEATH THE TREE ON THE RIGHTHAND SIDE,IT WAS DISCOVERED HIDDEN UNDER A TABLE! IT HAS BEEN WORKED ON THE BOARD IT WAS FOUND ATTACHED TO AND HAS SINCE BEEN REMOVED FOR EASE OF POSTING.

IN VERY GOOD BUT EXPECTED VINTAGE CONDITION FOR AGE WITH SEEMINGLY ALL OF THE BEAUTIFUL EMBROIDERIE STILL IN TACT. THE BACKCLOTH PERHAPS UNDERSTANDBLY SOILED AROUND THE TOP EDGE AND THERE ARE FEINT AGE SPOTS COMMENSURATE WITH AGE TO THE BACKCLOTH -BUT HARDLY DETRACTING FROM THE GENERAL PICTURE & COULD POSSIBLY BE STEAM CLEANED IF SO WISHED.THIS IS A REAL FIND FOR THE DISCERNING COLLECTOR-JUST BEAUTIFUL

A WONDERFUL FIND FOR THE DISCERNING COLLECTOR-ANY QUERIES-PLEASE E-MAIL!
